    Traxxas Shocks GTR Aluminum Red-Anodized

    Hey guys, wuz up?

    I live in Montreal, Canada, and for some reason I cannot order a set of Traxxas Shocks GTR Aluminum Red-Anodized through the Tower Hobbies web site because of the following:
    A - Flammable, cannot be shipped via Air
    B - Case of Fuel, must ship ground only, additional hazardous material charge applies
    C - Size / Weight Restriction, can only ship within the US
    D - Size / Weight Restriction, can only ship within the US or to Canada
    E - Item Restricted to state or country due to circumstances beyond our control
    G - Item restricted, cannot ship to a P.O. Box Address

    Can anyone in Canada tell me how I can get them or if you have an alternative?

    Thank You

    It listed all those reasons? That's odd. There is no reason a set of shocks couldn't ship to Canada. unless the shock fluid is setting off some red flags, but that's just silly.

    Order them from Great Hobbies?

    Worth a shot anyways, they might have to bring them in.
    Nothing wrong with them, they are a anodized version of the upgraded shock.

    I run 60wt, but everyone is different. Different wt oils have different pro's and cons.

    I ordered a set of shocks from eBay, they had no issues shipping them to me, Im in Saskatoon. Maybe try another American seller. But I have found that by the time you add shipping, and any other duties or taxes, its not really any cheaper to buy from the States. Unless you find an awesome deal.
